Stem Cells for COVID-19: Potential Benefits

The SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus has spread like fire across the globe in less than a year – affecting more than 90 million people and causing 2 million+ deaths. The rapid spread of the disease and explosive death rate sped off groundwork on the treatment of the viral infection. However, the virus continues to infect more and more people worldwide and killing thousands affected people on a daily basis. The scientific studies and clinical trials on specific Covid therapies have yielded both positive and negative results for a handful of medicines and interventional therapies. According to an emergency use authorization (EUA)by the

The coronavirus pandemic has affected day to day activities for most individuals around the world and completely overturned the life of autistic people and their families. Pandemics are the same as other disasters in their fatalities, unpredictability, and persistent effects. Yet, they are different from disasters as they prevent people from gathering and converging and instead demand the opposite reactions of isolation, separation, and quarantine. These factors cause interference within family norms and rituals that usually protect family bonding during any kind of crisis. Such norms are especially relevant to the population with ASD, where repetitive interests and behaviors are

Trump Received Antibodies Originally Derived From Abortion Tissue

A few weeks before, President Donald Trump received anti-coronavirus antibodies developed using a cell line derived from abortion tissue. He later praised this cutting-edge therapy as “a miracle coming down from God.” In the past, the Trump administration has looked to curtail medical research using fetal tissue from abortions. In 2019, the administration moved in to take an increasingly firm line against the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to fund research for experimentation using baby body parts. Trump supporters hailed the victory, called such studies, analyses, and clinical trials “outrageous and disgusting,” and thanked the administration for banning the experimentation.

Stem Cells and the Coronavirus

The Coronavirus still has no cure or vaccine in sight. Some people have resorted to untested medical treatments, like combining different respiratory medications. Others have turned to homeopathic remedies. Many people have wondered about the effectiveness of stem cells on coronavirus. To date, the science is murky. The Immunology of the Coronavirus Understanding virology is the foundation of understanding how to combat the virus. The coronavirus is an enveloped, linear, single-stranded RNA virus with a helical capsid. Most often, it causes the common cold, but it has also been also responsible for larger outbreaks. While COVID-19 is its newest rendition,
